Natalie's Score: 91/100

A terrific red, especially at this price point. I love the black raspberry, anise and cedar smoke. It’s so vibrant and live in the glass, yet delivers full-bodied depth and length.

Food pairings: sesame beef & broccoli stir-fry, duck a l'orange, apple-walnut stuffed mushroom caps, herbs & fruit turkey breasts, low fat beef stroganoff.

Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Château Puech Haut Prestige is a full bodied, FRUITY to integrated wine with intense aromas of bilberry, prune/caramel, cedar, oak and coconut. Tannins are refined (decant for 1 hour) and the finish is long and bit hot at 14.8%. This wine should be aged a bit longer as it will evolve nicely for the next 5 to 10 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - good value and thus a recommended buy. Tasted July/11.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
